Kudos, Elon Musk, for understanding that patents are bad for innovation and consequently doing what's right: Promising non-aggression regarding Tesla's patents, so that they can be used to spur innovation and save the planet!


Of course the assholes at the stock markets punished you for it, because they're selfish pricks who don't eve understand what sharing means, but you have definitely done the right thing and sent the right message!


He even said "We believe that applying the open-source philosophy to our patents will strengthen rather than diminish Tesla's position", which I don't think anybody else in the automotive industry will ever understand (except maybe Google).
